О курсе

This course will give you a foundation in proper nutrition with a focus on optimal health using the last scientific research. It is aimed at anyone considering a healthy lifestyle, such as vegetarians, vegans, flexitarians, Mediterranean diet aficionados, or those looking at a career in health and wellness, such as a Nutritional Therapist or Wellness Coach.  This course is separate, yet a perquisite for our Nutritional Therapy course, which dives into how food affects our bodies and how to use that to fight disease.  You will benefit more from this course if you understand basic physiology, but it is not compulsory.
